The mathematical prediction of the promised arrival of Messiah is linked to the restoration of the Temple of Yehawah's Spirit of Holiness.

The birth of Messiah Yeshua on the Feast of Tabernacles 5 B.C. follows the yearly Feast Days of Yehawah that began with Passover and ends with the Feast of Tabernacles. This pattern of Passover progressing to Tabernacles continues from B.C. and the pattern does not change as it enters the time period of A.D.. Also, this progression demonstrates that 30 years are completed from the birth of Messiah on the Feast of Tabernacles 5 B.C. to the Feast of Tabernacles 26 BC when Messiah begins His Atonement ministry.

Daniel 9:1; 2; In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of Median descent, who was made king over the kingdom of the Chaldeans, in (520 B.C.) the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, observed in the books the number of the years which was revealed as the word of Yehawah to Jeremiah the prophet for the completion of the desolations of Jerusalem, namely, seventy years.

Daniel Remembers Jeremiah's Prophecy

Jeremiah 25:11; 12; ‘This whole land will be a desolation and a horror, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. ‘Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation,’ declares Yehawah, ‘for their iniquity,
Jeremiah 29:10; 11; 12-13; 14; “For thus says Yehawah, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares Yehawah, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. ‘I will be found by you,’ declares Yehawah, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares Yehawah, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
2 Chronicles 36:21; 22; 23; To fulfill the word of Yehawah by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths. All the days of its desolation it kept sabbath until seventy years were complete. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia—in order to fulfill the word of Yehawah by the mouth of Jeremiah—Yehawah stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he sent a proclamation throughout his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘Yehawah Eloheyem of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has appointed me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all His people, may Yehawah Eloheyem be with him, and let him go up!’ ”

Ezra's Account of the Temple Restoration

Ezra 1:1; 2; 3; Now in (539 – 538 B.C.) the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of Yehawah by the mouth of Jeremiah, Yehawah stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he sent a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying: “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘Yehawah Eloheyem of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and He has appointed me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. ‘Whoever there is among you of all His people, may his Eloheyem be with him! Let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah and rebuild the house of Yehawah Eloheyem of Israel; He is Eloheyem who is in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Temple

Ezra 3:6; 7; 8; 10; 4:1; 4; 24; The exiles that return to Jerusalem laid the foundation of the Temple in (537 B.C.) the second year of King Cyrus. Then work on the house of Eloheyem in Jerusalem ceased, and it was stopped until (519 B.C.) the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
Ezra 5:1; 2; 3; When the prophets, Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of Eloheyem of Israel, who was over them, then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak arose and began to rebuild the house of Eloheyem which is in Jerusalem; and the prophets of Eloheyem were with them supporting them. At that time Tattenai, the governor of the province beyond the River, and Shethar-bozenai and their colleagues came to them and spoke to them thus, “Who issued you a decree to rebuild this temple and to finish this structure?”
Haggai 1:1; 2; 3-4; In (519 B.C.) the second year of Darius the king, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of Yehawah came by the prophet Haggai to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying,  “Thus says Yehawah of hosts, ‘This people says, “The time has not come, even the time for the house of Yehawah to be rebuilt.”  Then the word of Yehawah came by Haggai the prophet, saying, “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses while this house lies desolate?”
Haggai 1:14; 15; 2:1; 2; 3; Haggai the profit encourages the people of Judah to complete the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem.
Ezra 6:14; 15;  And the elders of the Jews were successful in building through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they finished building according to the command of Eloheyem of Israel and the decree of Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia. This temple was completed on the third day of the month Adar; it was the sixth year (514 B.C.) of the reign of King Darius.
Ezra 7:6; 7-8; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15; 16; 17; 18; 19-20; 21; 22; 23; 24; 25; 26; 27; 28; Ezra did not actually travel to Jerusalem until 66 years after the Temple was completed. In (458 B.C.) the seventh year of Artaxerxes, who was the grandson of Darius, instructed Ezra to organize the Levitical priesthood and provided funding for the Temple worship. 

Jerusalem Walls and Gates Restored

Nehemiah 2:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 4:6; 5:14; 6:1; In the 20th year of Artaxerxes reign (445 B.C.), Nehemiah received permission to travel to Judah and complete the building of the wall and gates of Jerusalem. There does not exist an exact account of the time when the wall and gates of Jerusalem were completed. I am assuming that 6 years would be sufficient and that would complete the seven weeks equaling 49 years of 
Daniel 9:25; ending in the year (439 B.C.). The following 62 weeks equaling 434 years would be completed at the time of Messiah's birth in 5 BC on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. Nehemiah completed his work  before his 12 year governorship had ended, then he returned to serve Artaxerxes. 
Nehemiah 13:6; 7; But, by (432 B.C.) Nehemiah returns to Jerusalem a second time to discipline Eliashib the priest and admonish the people of Judah to faithfully serve Yehawah.

Daniel's Prophetic 70 Weeks

The 70 weeks in Daniel and their connection to Messiah Yeshua's 3 1/2 year ministry. It is important to notice that the 70 weeks must be completed before sin is removed and Atonement is accomplished. Bible prophecy points to the return of Messiah on the Feast of Trumpets and the marriage supper with the Lamb is completed on the Day ofAtonement. The beginning of Messiah's ministry also focuses on Trumpets and the arrival of Yeshua after defeating Satan's temptation in the wilderness. Then, 10 days later on Atonement, Messiah Yeshua announces the year of Liberty that proclaims the Jubilee begins in the following spring on the first day of the month of a Abib.

Daniel 9:24; 25; 26; “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.  “So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. 

(The 70 weeks are explained to Daniel. Seven weeks equals 49 years that will be needed to rebuild the Temple and city of Jerusalem. Then 62 weeks equals 434 years until the birth of Messiah in (5 B.C.) on the first day of the feast of Tabernacles.) 

Messiah's Birth

Luke 1:31-32; 33-34; 35; “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Yeshua. “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and Yehawah Eloheyem will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of Eloheyem.
Matthew 1:18; Now the birth of Messiah Yeshua was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 1:21-22; 23; “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Yeshua, for He will save His people from their sins.” Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “with us Tabernacles Eloheyem.”
Luke 2:11; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Messiah Yehawah. 

Mary and Joseph flee to Egypt

(Mary and Joseph were warned that king Herod was planning to murder there baby Yeshua the promised Messiah. Joseph and Mary and baby Yeshua fled to Egypt for safety. When Herod learned he was tricked by the Magi, then Herod ordered the execution of all the children under age 2 that were born in the area of Bethlehem. Herod died a few months later before Passover in (4 B.C.), so then Messiah Yeshua was born on the Feast of Tabernacles (5 B.C.). 

Matthew 2: 1-2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9-10; 11; 12; 13; 14-15; 16; 17; 18; Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi. Then what had been spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “A voice was heard in Ramah, Weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children; And she refused to be comforted, Because they were no more.”

Daniel's 62 Sevens

(The 62 sevens were completed (5 B.C.) at Messiah's birth that announced His arrival as the promised King and Savior. Then there are 30 years of silence until Messiah Yeshua begins His ministry on the day of Atonement in (26 A.D.) . Messiah Yeshua's 3 1/2 year ministry would end on Passover ( 30 A.D.) .  But after His 3 1/2 year ministry Messiah Yeshua was cut off and had nothing.)

Daniel 9:26; “Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.

Final Week of Daniel  

(There remains a final seven-year period until Atonement will be accomplished at Messiah's return when He establishes His Kingdom and removes Satan's dominion of darkness. This final seven-year period is divided into two parts consisting of 3 1/2 year periods. The Jubilee announcement on Atonement that began Yeshua's 3 1/2 year ministry will be fraudulently copied by the end time antichrist proclaiming a year of mercy on the Day of Atonement, just as the Pope did in the fall of 2015. Then at the end of 3 1/2 years of empty promises of peace peace, then 3 1/2 years of Tribulation and World War Woes will begin. 
(Da 12: 1; 4; 6; 7; 9; 11; 12; Rev 11:1; 2; 3; 12:6; 7; 14;) 
The final 3 1/2 year of tribulation will also coincide with Messiah Yeshua's promise to protect his people for 3 1/2 years in the place of safety. So then, there is the true Messiah's seven-year ministry completing the work of salvation, that is fraudulently copied by the antichrist that brings the End Time 3 1/2 years of destruction.
 ( Da 7: 8; 11; 25; 12:7; Rev 13:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6;)

Daniel 9:27 “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”

Messiah Yeshua Baptized

(John baptized Messiah Yeshua in the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar. In ( 11-12 A.D.) Tiberius Caesar was already a co-ruler of the Roman Empire. Messiah Yeshua would become 30 years old on the Feast of Tabernacles ( 26 A.D.)

Luke 3:1; Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip was tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene,

(Messiah Yeshua was almost 30 years old (26 A.D.) when He was baptized by John, possibly near or after Pentecost. Then, Yeshua fasted in the wilderness for 40 days and later was tempted by Satan. 
 Yeshua returned to His hometown of Nazareth to fulfill 
Isaiah 9:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; that prophetically portrays the Feast of  Trumpets End Time battle on the day of the Lord. Messiah Yeshua's first arrival on the Feast of Trumpets would become a light to those in darkness. Then, 10 days later on Atonement, Messiah Yeshua would quote from 
Isaiah 61:1; 2; to announce the year of Liberty that begins the Jubilee on the following spring of the first Day of Abib. Messiah Yeshua is partially fulfilling the prophetic Feast Days on His first arrival and will later return on Trumpets and then complete the Atonement marriage before the Feast of Tabernacles establishes Yehawah's Kingdom on earth.)

Luke 3:21; 22; 23; Now when all the people were baptized, Yeshua was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” When He began His ministry (26 A.D.), Yeshua Himself was about thirty years of age,
Luke 4:1; 2; Yeshua, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry.
Luke 4:14-15; 16-17; 18; 19; And Yeshua returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through all the surrounding district. And He began teaching in their synagogues and was praised by all. And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of Yehawah is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the "Good News" to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of Yehawah.”
Luke 4:20-21; And He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

(Leviticus 25:8; 9; 10; The year of Liberty is announced on the day of Atonement approximately six months before the Jubilee year actually begins on the first day of the new year in the month of Abib that is 14 days before Passover.)

Leviticus 25:8; 9; 10; ‘You are also to count off seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven sabbaths of years, namely, forty-nine years. ‘You shall then sound a ram’s horn abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land. ‘You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.
Exodus 12:2; The first day of the month of Abib in the spring is 14 days before Passover, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.

Atonement Jubilee

(On Atonement, Messiah Yeshua announces the year of Liberty. Then, prophetically warns of a 3 1/2 year spiritual drought that follows the pattern of the prophet Elijah. For 3 1/2 years, Yeshua's ministry would confront the hypocritical religious teachers of the law and lead people back to Yehawah by the Spirit and power that was in Elijah.)

Luke 4:24-25; And He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown. 25 “But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land;

(Messiah Yeshua is partially fulfilling the prophetic promises in Isaiah 61:1; at His first coming and will complete the Atonement cleansing when he returns the second time to free the captives of sin and destroys Satan's dominion of darkness.) 

Isaiah 9:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; They will be glad in Your presence As with the gladness of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders, The rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian. For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire. For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty Eloheyem , Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of Yehawah of hosts will accomplish this.
Isaiah 11:1; 2; Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of Yehawah will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of Yehawah.
Isaiah 42:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7;“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold; My chosen one in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the nations. “He will not cry out or raise His voice, Nor make His voice heard in the street. “A bruised reed He will not break And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice. “He will not be disheartened or crushed Until He has established justice in the earth; And the coastlands will wait expectantly for His law.” Thus says Yehawah Eloheyem, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it, “I am Yehawah, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the nations, To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the dungeon And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.
Isaiah 48:16; 17; “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, I was there. And now Yehawah Eloheyem has sent Me, and His Spirit.” Thus says Yehawah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, “I am Yehawah your Eloheyem, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.
Isaiah 61:1; The Spirit of Yehawah Eloheyem is upon me, Because Yehawah has anointed me To bring Good News to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners;

Messiah gathers Disciples

(Messiah Yeshua attended the feast of Tabernacles 26 A.D. and later passed by John the Baptist on His way home to Capernaum.) 

John 1: 28-29; 30-31; 32; 33; 34-35; 36-37; John the Baptist identified the Lamb of Yahweh and several disciples began to follow Messiah Yeshua.)


Good News

(The Gospel of John 1:34-35; 36-37; occurs before Matthew 4:12; 17; 18; 19; where John the Baptist identifies Messiah Yeshua and the disciples begin following the Lamb of Yahweh. The biblical account of Messiah Yeshua progresses to the spring of (27 A.D.) just before Passover.
 When, John 2:1-2; records the first Passover after the (26 A.D.) Atonement announcement of the year of Liberty. Shortly before Passover Yeshua's disciples had accompanied Him to the wedding where Yeshua changed water into wine.)

John 2:1-2; On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Yeshua was there; and both Yeshua and His disciples were invited to the wedding.
John 2:11; This beginning of His signs Yeshua did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.

First Passover

John 2:13-14; 15; 16-17;  In the year ( 27 A.D.) the Passover of the Jews was near, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables.

(John 2:18-19; 20; After, Messiah Yeshua cleanse the temple of the marketplace, then the Jews asked for a sign of Messiah's authority. Yeshua prophetically compared his body to the Temple, when He said, "destroy this temple and I will restore it in three days." The Jews said, "that the temple building project required 46 years." The Jews were referring to Herod the Great, who began the expansion of the Temple and courtyard in (20-19 B.C.). That would place Messiah Yeshua's 3 1/2 year ministry arriving at the first Passover in ( 27 A.D.) and exactly 46 years after Herod's Temple project began.)

(John 2:13; After Passover there is a statement in:
John 3:22; 23; 24; Some of the disciples of John the Baptist are now following Messiah Yeshua and continue baptizing. At that time John the Baptist had not yet been put in prison. 
Luke 4:31-32; 5:1-2; 3-4; 8-9; 10-11; Messiah Yeshua returns to Capernaum to teach in the synagogues.
Matthew 4:12; The accounts of Yeshua calling his disciples to be fishers of men occurs sometime after the first Passover.)

Fishers of Men

(Messiah Yeshua later calls his disciples to follow Him in spreading the, "Good News" of salvation. Yeshua's disciples would become fishers of men.)


Matthew 4:12-13; 14-15; 16; 17; 18; 19-20; 21; 22; Now when Yeshua heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth, He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles “The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, Upon them a Light dawned.” From that time Yeshua began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Now as Yeshua was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.

(Jn 4:45 NASB;) Later after Tabernacles (27 A.D.) at the end of the first year of Messiah's ministry in the seventh month of the feast cycle. 
(Jn 4:35 NASB;) Yeshua makes a statement that there are four months until the harvest that would correspond to next Passover and begins the second year of Messiah's ministry.)

 John 4:35 NASB; “Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest.
John 4:45 NASB; So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things that He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they themselves also went to the feast.

Second Passover

(Jn 5:1 NASB; begins the second Passover (28 A.D.) and year two of Messiah's ministry.)

John 5:1; 2; After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes.

(Luke 6:1 KJV; This may also be the Passover where the disciples are picking grain and eating it raw from the field. There is a reason why the King James would mention the importance of the second High Sabbath of Unleavened Bread. No one is allowed to eat the ripe Barley until after the wave sheaf offering is made. The wave sheaf always occurs after the first High Holy Sabbath of Unleavened Bread.)

Luke 6:1 KJV; And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.


(Matthew 11:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; Lk 7:18-19; 20-21; 22-23;  John the Baptist remained in prison for over year. John's disciples were sent to Yeshua and asked if he was the promised Messiah.
Matthew 14:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7 -8; 9-10; 11-12; Lk 9:7; 8; 9; Herod had John the Baptist executed some time before the third Passover occurred.)

Third Passover

(29 A.D.) Year 3 begins, John's Gospel records the third Passover.
 John 6:4-5; 6-7; 8-9; Mt 14:12-13; 14. 15; 16-18; After John the Baptist death, there is an account of Messiah Yeshua feeding a multitude with five loaves and two fishes.)

John 6:4; Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near.


(It is important to consider that the gospel writers did not include all of the required Festivals of Yehawah, even though they would be celebrated by Messiah Yeshua and His disciples. The account of the feast in 
(John 4: 35 NASB; Jn 4:45 NASB; Jn 5:1 NASB;) may be questionable because they are not clearly identified, but I think it is reasonable to assume that John would consistently mention the most important Feast days of Passover and Tabernacles. John's recording of 3 Passovers complete the events that lead up to 
John 7:2; the fourth Feast of Tabernacles that precedes the final fourth Passover. John was probably jumping to the end of the story with the account of Messiah Yeshua's last participation in the Feast of Tabernacles. I believe there is sufficient evidence that Yeshua's ministry occurred over 3 1/2 years from (26 A.D.) to (30 A.D.) when Messiah died. 
Also, Daniel 9:26; reveals that Messiah was cut off and will not complete His work of bringing the Kingdom until the final 3 1/2 years are accomplished at the End Time.)

John 7:1-2; After these things Yeshua was walking in Galilee, for He was unwilling to walk in Judea because the Jews were seeking to kill Him. 2 Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths (29 A.D.), was near.
John 7:37-38; 39; Now on the last day, the great day of the Feast of Tabernacles (29 A.D.), Yeshua stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ ” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Yeshua was not yet glorified.

Final Passover 30 A.D.
and messiahs Crucifixion

John 12:1; Yeshua, therefore, six days before the Passover (30 A.D.) 3 1/2 years after His ministry began on the day of atonement ( 26 A.D.), came to Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Yeshua had raised from the dead. 


(The, "Good News" of Messiah Yeshua's 3 1/2 year ministry was already reaching out to the Jews and Gentiles far beyond the land of Israel. The Gospel writers had to compress their story of Yeshua and only focused on the most important events of His 3 1/2 year ministry. 
(Jn 21:25;) I suppose even massive books cannot contain everything about Messiah Yeshua's first coming. Yeshua began His ministry on Atonement (26 A.D.) by announcing the Jubilee of Liberty. Messiah proclaimed the, "Good News" of the future Kingdom of Yahweh that will Liberate all of mankind from Satan's dominion of darkness and sin. The Festival of Liberation follows a cycle of seven weeks that repeats every 49 years and continually looks forward to the Jubilee and promised Kingdom Restoration. But, Yeshua ministry continued beyond (27 A.D. the beginning of Messiah's ministry) and the 50th year of Jubilee that is also called, "Yahweh's Favorable year.")

John 12:19-20; 21-22; 23-24; 25-26; 27-28; 29-30; 31-32; So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him.” Now there were some Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast; these then came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Yeshua.” Philip came and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip came and told Yeshua. And Yeshua answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. “He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. “If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. “Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.” So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered; others were saying, “An angel has spoken to Him.” Yeshua answered and said, “This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. “Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.”

John 21:25; And there are also many other things which Yeshua did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.

(Luke 4:17; 18; 19; when Yeshua began his ministry on the Day of Atonement (26 A.D.), He read from the prophet 
Isaiah 61:1; 2; . Butt, Yeshua does not finish the last line that says, "the day of vengeance of Eloheyem." Messiah has only fulfilled the first half of Isaiah's prophecy of announcing the Jubilee and Yahweh's favorable year . 
But, Isaiah 61:2; continues to worn of the vengeance of Eloheyem and the day of the Yehawah that will complete the, "restoration of the Kingdom of Yehawah." This compares to Daniel 9:26; 27; where there is a final week that is divided in half. Messiah Yeshua must complete the first 3 1/2 years of his ministry and then be cut off and have nothing. Until, the vengeance of Eloheyem is poured out at the end of the 3 1/2 year ministry of the two witnesses. 
In (Revelation 11:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12;) vengeance is completed on the Day of Yehawah. So then, the 70 weeks and Daniel will be completed with the Atonement marriage at Messiah Yeshua's return.
(Rev 19:7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; )

Isaiah 61:1; 2; The Spirit of Yehawah Eloheyem is upon me, Because the Yehawah has anointed me To bring Good News to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the Yehawah And the day of vengeance of Eloheyem; To comfort all who mourn,

Elijah Restores All Things

Luke 4:24-25; And He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown. “But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land; 

(Messiah Yeshua compares Himself to Elijah and his 3 1/2 year prophetic ministry of restoring the people to the Eloheyem of Yehawah.)

The Elijah Connection to Messiah

Malachi 4:4; 5-6; “Behold, I am going to send you (Elijah is a reference to Messiah) the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Yehawah. “He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.”
Luke 1:15; 16; 17; “For (John the Baptist) will be great in the sight of Yehawah; and he will drink no wine or liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother’s womb. “And he will turn many of the sons of Israel back to the Yehawah their Eloheyem. “It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power (that was in Elijah), to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for Yehawah.”

(John the Baptist was led by the Spirit and power that was in, "Elijah" but he testifies later that he is not the Elijah or the Elohim of Yahweh that is Yehawah’s Messiah.)

John 1:19-20; 21; 22-23; 24-26; This is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent to him priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” They asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” Then they said to him, “Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of Yehawah,’ as Isaiah the prophet said.” Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. They asked him, and said to him, “Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?” John answered them saying, “I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know.

(Isaiah 40:3; John the Baptist confesses that he is not Elijah or the Messiah. John the Baptist was led by the Spirit of the Heavenly Father to prepare the people for the arrival of Elijah the Anointed One called Messiah.)

John 1:29-30; 31; 33; The next day he saw Yeshua coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of Eloheyem who takes away the sin of the world! “This is He on behalf of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’ “I did not recognize Him, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I came baptizing in water.” John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and the Spirit remained upon Him. “I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’

(Matthew 11:12; 13-15; “From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Yehawah suffers violence by the hands of wicked men. 
 Messiah Yeshua continues, "all the prophets and the law until John prophecy, so that desiring, received him that is Elijah who was to come. let him who has ears to hear, let him hear”. Messiah Yeshua is stating that all the prophets and John had desired to receive the spirit of the Eloheyem of Yehawah which is Christ in them. The prophets proclaimed the, "Good News" that all of mankind could also desire and receive the spirit of Elijah, the Eloheyem of Yehawah , who is Messiah Yeshua. )
(Mt 7:21; 22:44; Lk 6:46; Acts 2:32; 33; 34-35; 36; 1 Pe 1:2; 3; 4; 5-6; 7; 8-9; 10; 11; 12;)

Matthew 16:13-14; 15-16; 17; Now when Yeshua came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living Eloheyem.” And Yeshua said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 17:10-11; 12; And His disciples asked Him, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” And He answered and said, “Elijah is coming and will restore all things; but I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.”

(Malachi 3:1; 2; 3; 4; 4:4; Messiah Yeshua is the Eternal Son of Yehawah, who is the messenger of the Covenant Renewal. Messiah Yeshua came to His Temple to cleanse and purify the worshipers so that they would make their lives an acceptable sacrifice of obedience. Messiah Yeshua is the Elijah that came the first time to call everyone to repent and return to Yahweh Elohim. The Elijah must come first and then (He the Messiah) will restore all things when the Kingdom of Yehawah is established on earth. Messiah Yeshua is identifying Himself as the promised Elijah. John the Baptist was moved by the Spirit of Yehawah that was also in the former prophet Elijah. John the Baptist did not restore the Kingdom of Yehawah or baptize in the Spirit of Holiness so that all things may be restored to obedience of Yehawah's laws. But, Messiah Yeshua is Perfectly One in the Spirit of Holiness with the Heavenly Father, and Yeshua is the " Eloheyem of Yehawah = EliYah"who will restore all things.
 John 4:21; 22; 23-24; 25-26; )

Mark 9:11; 12; 13; They asked Him, saying, “Why is it that the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” And He said to them, “Elijah does first come and restore all things. And yet how is it written of the Son of Man that He will suffer many things and be treated with contempt? “But I say to you that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him.”
Acts 3:18-19; 20-21; 22; 24; 25; 26; After Messiah Yeshua suffered crucifixion, then three days later He arose from death and ascended. Heaven must receive Him until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. 22 “Moses said, ‘The Yehawah Eloheyem will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed to everything He says to you.

Isaiah 7:14; The promised Immanuel came to reveal Eloheyem the Heavenly Father Tabernacling with His people. And when, Messiah Yeshua returns a second time, then the 70 weeks of Daniel will be complete and the Kingdom of Yehawah will be established on earth. Then, the whole world will celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. Yehawah's yearly cycle of Feasts that portray Messiah's work of Salvation began with Passover and will triumphantly rejoice in the Kingdom of Tabernacles when Messiah restores all things.
(Zec 14:4; 6; 7; 8; 9; 16; Isa 2:2; 3; 4; 5; 9:6; 7; 11:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; )
Messiah Yeshua is the True Temple of Yehawah Eloheyem's Spirit of Holiness and he will reign as the King of Righteousness and Prince of Peace, Melchizedek.
